Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I work from the "surveillance gaze". We surveil our own lives (reflectively), we surveil our profession (linkd In), online we also surveil new people we've just met, people we'd like to have sex with, we surveil celebrities, and (doubling down on the surveillance!) we do most of this as we look down on our phones... like a CCTV camera; we become the surveillance gaze. This gaze creates a thread through all my work, but also gives me the freedom to consider all sorts of subjects. (Hint: the titles give some indication of where my head was at when I created these work of art).
